reports about how the pilots were recovered. there's one report that a u.s. helicopter with special forces, or search-and-rescue teams, either one of the two, rescued one, and then there's a report out there the other pilot was picked up by a rebel group, which is interesting and unusual, of course, but that's all we know about the fate of the pilots. they're safe and the pentagon continues to insist this plane was not shot down, that it was a mechanical problem. >> ron allen, reporting from cairo for us, thank you very much. >>> let's talk about what's happening on the ground. for that i want to bring in former general monty miggs. always good to see you. richard engel says these guys, the anti-gadhafi forces can't even load their own weapons, they don't know who their leaders are. it seems like their strategy is to rely on us. how do you see it? >> certainly they have asked for us to come in and keep the libyan air force off of them, but remember, some of the forces in afghanistan look pretty shaky, and over a period of time they have made themselves pretty effective, so don't completely

, however, as you noted, because even amid this crisis, the u.s. has had some contact with libyan officials and that has been critical in terms of helping to get americans and others out of the tripoli safely. so if you were to cut off all of those ties, that could put some of the remaining americans, obviously, in some jeopardy. why would the u.s. then take such a dramatic step and cut off all diplomatic ties? because that was a big deal for colonel gadhafi a few years ago when the george w. bush administration finally said he was no longer a rogue state, that they would recognize him diplomatally because he came forward with his weapons program. if all of a sudden the u.s. cut off all ties, that would he remove even more if there is a shred of legitimacy left for gadhafi and remove it once and for all. that would be the pressure point because that is something he has craved so long is have some legitimacy on the world stage. of course, given what ben is reporting and given what is happening on the ground right now, it's doubtful he has any legitimacy but the u.s. is looking for any lever

's very important to understand what general madis said today. what he said, that is if the u.s. decided to enforce a no-fly zone it would, first, involve u.s. military air strikes against targets inside libya. you'd have to bomb the runways. you might take out their aircraft or certainly their air defense systems, missiles, radar, and the like. so it would involve a u.s. military attack on libya itself. and if the white house makes that decision, of course, the u.s. military would carry it out. but i can tell you that there's a lot of hesitation, not only here in the building and among the u.s. military to take that kind of aggressive step, but even among the nato allies who would be essential if the u.s. and nato allies were to launch any kind of operation like this, and so far only the british are doing any kind of saber rattling in that regard. and the rest of nato nations, allies, are pretty much silent whether to launch any military operation against libya. >> give is insight on the three military war ships in the suez canal. what is their role, at this point? >> reporter: their ro
